Ireland: Manufacturing production rebounds in June

August 7, 2020

Manufacturing output grew 13.0% month-on-month in seasonally-adjusted terms in June (May: -14.1% mom).

The notable upturn was partly driven by a marked rebound in modern sector production. In addition, traditional sector output also swung to expansion.

On an annual basis, factory output rose 5.1% in June, rebounding from May’s 12.7% fall. Accordingly, the trend improved significantly, with the annual average growth of manufacturing production coming in at plus 3.4%, up from May's 2.8% reading.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists project industrial production to contract 5.3% in 2020, which is down 1.4 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2021, the panel sees industrial production growth of 3.9%.
